I have just completed setting up a new server running AD and DNS. The domain is called nectarcomputer, and all is working fine except i cannot now see our website externally on the web.
Any ideas what i can do to rectify this.

Is the website domain name the same as your internal domain name?

If so, you'll need to manually add a Host (A) record to your DNS zone and give it the IP address of your webserver.
